Valentino stands for craftsmanship, luxury and feminine beauty. Ever since his debut in 1959, Valentino Garavani created handmade garments with luxury materials, great focus, and a keen eye for detail and timeless beauty.
Dressing Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Valentino gained the support of some of the most important style icons in the 60s and 70s. His unique fashion reflects the spirit of his Italian roots and the elegance of Parisian women.
In Paris he studied at the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. Famous for creating the signature color “Valentino Red”, Valentino Garavani led the alta moda house until 2007. Then Maria Grazia Chiuri (now at Dior) and Pierpaolo Piccioli took over the art direction.
